Competency test results announced
Test scores surprisingly low;
private schools score higher
By GLENN THOMAS
Staff Writer
The competency test is
over ami the results are
known. Although the test
is a simple measure of
basic computational and
reading skills, the marks
seem surprisingly low.
Over all, the North
Carolina Public School
system has a 14 percent
failure rate on the read-
mi: test, and a N percent
ire rate on the com-
putational test.
The reading test is a
basic examination of a
students ability to read
How directions. The
include- questions in
such as how to
read a map, how to read
a directory, and
fill out a job
ion.
math test involved

equired stu-
ad a recipe.
sales tax, and
form basic multipli-
md dh iHon.
tnklin L. Britt, dir-
r of the Northeast
Educational Center in
Williamston, said that he
felt that the test was a
good indication of a
ent's ability . The cen-
ter, which covers a 15
nt) area including Pitt
mty, released a report
earlier this week on how
each county did.
Britt said that the first
step in interpreting the
results of the test was to
define competency. He
went on to say that many
of the students who failed
the test were classified as
being mentally retarded.
One of the biggest
problems with the test is
the elimination of all
racial and sexual bias.
"The test commission
took great pains to elim-
inate both sex bias and
racial bias said Britt.
"There was an effort to
ask about each question,
was it sexually or racially
biased
Britt said he feel that
the poor results from the
test can best be related
to amount of education
the students' parents have
had. Britt said "parent
education level is a better
indicator than sex or
race
The programs that are
to be instituted by the
Governor will be of great
benefit to the students
who failed. "We've iden-
tified what is needed,
and we're trying to do
smething about it said
Britt. "The one who
benefits the most is the
kid who failed
On the statewide level
the private schools did
much better than the
public schools. The pri-
vate schools had 99 of
their students passing the
reading test, and 98
passing the math skills
test. Britt said that the
gross difference in test
-cores could be attributed
to a difference in the
amount of money spent in
private and public
schools.
Britt also said that
students who failed the
test will receive remedial
help in the areas in
which they are deficient.
This will be made avail-
able through a new $3.2
million to be added to the
educational budget. The
money will be alloted
to the different districts on
the basis of the number
of students failing and
their severity.
On the whole Pitt
County was just slightly
below the state average.
Pitt scored a 14 percent
failure rate on the read-
ing test and a 20 percent
failure rate on the math
test. John McKnight, dir-
ector of Testing, Re-
search, and Planning for
the Pitt County school
ystem, said "we are
very pleased with these
results, since statistics
indicate that the failure
rate since the trial testing
in March of last year has
been reduced approx-
imately 60 percent in
reading. While this is no
way attempts to excuse
the failures, it is an
important factor to con-
sider in examining overall
results
Ott Alford, superin-
tendant of Pitt County
schools said, "The posi-
tive attitude of all in-
volved is a major reason
for the climate of success
which exists for students
in Pitt County today. The
continued effort and re-
finement of programs will
result in further reduction
of failures and even more
favorable response to the
challenge of a quality
education for Pitt County
graduates
Example test questions
Here are some ex-
amples of questions which
students could be ex-
pected to answer. These
questions come directly
from a manual designed to
help students prepare for
the test:
1. What does this sign
mean?
a) Walk your bike
b) Motorcycles not al-
lowed
c) No bikes allowed
dBike route
2. The caution on the can
means you should not
a) Shake the can
b) Make a hole in the
can
c) Turn the can upside
down
d) Put the can in the
refrigerator

By MARC BARNES
News Editor
Governor James B.
Hunt jr. appeared on
statewide television on
January 10 to speak on
the recent results of the
statewide competency
tests, which were admin-
istered last fall to elev-
enth graders throughout
the public education sys-
tem in this state.
"The scores were
good, but they weren't
good enough the gov-
ernor said. He added the
90V2 of all students who
attempted passed the
reading portion of the
test, and 85V2 passed the
math computation part of
the test.
The governor said that
even though results of
the tests appeared to be
very good, some 13,000
students � one out of
every six � failed one
part of the test or the
other. "If any student
has failed, all of us in
North Carolina have
failed the governor
stated. He continued,
"Are we readv for the
1980's? If not, we
cannot point the finger at
anyone else but our-
ves.
The governor added
that all of the states citi-
zens were responsible for
the success of the
schools.
During the broadcast,
the governor showed a
video tape of a panel
discussion held at Raleigh
High School. Student re-
action to the competency
tests was generally fav-
orable, and a majority of
the students said that the
tests helped them to
identify weaknesses that
needed extra work.
The governor stressed
the need for private indi-
viduals to get involved in
volunteer work as tutors
to help out students who
are having problems with
math or reading.
"If the young people
are willing to learn, we
should give them the
chance the governor
said. He urged the De-
partment of Education to
keep the test, and he
announced an additional
funding of $3.2 million to
provide materials for
teaching remedial skills
to students who failed
the test.
Hunt's announcement
of additional money for
remediation brought the
total funds allocated for
this purpose to approx-
imately $7.5 million.
Hunt also announced
that parents would re-
ceive reports so as to
know how their child did
on the competency test,
and he went on to
parents to help
children.
The governor chal-
lenged everyone to trv
harder the next time
around � he said that
failed students should trv
harder to learn the basic
skills needed to pass the
test, that students who
passed, should help their
less fortunate classmates,
and that churches and
civic groups should put
forth a greater effort to
help students learn ev-
eryday tasks such as
finding a number in the
phone book, and reading
a road map.
"Please help vour
schools Hunt said.

ernment to solve this

Phone-a-thon discussed;
SGA announces vacancies
By CHRIS CAGLE
Staff Writer
The Student Govern-
ment Association held its
first meeting of the year
on Monday at 5 p.m.
Libby Lefler, SGA speak-
er presided.
The first items dis-
cussed were reports from
the standing committees.
The Student Welfare
Committee made a report
concerning their work.
This committee is in-
volved with parking and
towing facilities, visitation
and housing contracts.
The committee is also
working on a question-
naire for students in-
forming them of the
purpose of the SGA and
its duties.
Two vacancies now
open for SGA Day Repre-
sentative were reported at
TOMMY JOE PAYNE, SGA president, reports on the
results of the Alumni Phone-a-thon.
the meeting by Libby
Lefler. The resignations
from Karen Sanders and
Karen Laing were read
by Lefler. Sanders will be
doing her field place-
ment this semester and
Laing graduated.
Tommy Joe Payne,
SGA president, reported
on the Student Alumni
Phone-a-thon. The phone-
a-thon was held last
November and December.
According to Payne, Phi
Beta Lambda, an honor-
ary business frr �rnity,
collected the most mone-
tary pledges. Because of
this achievement, the
fraternity won the money
prize.
Payne also announced
that the SGA project for
this semester will be
similar to the phone-athon
The project will include
trying to get pledges
from seniors. The pled-
ges will be paid for the
following three years.
Payne announced to
the members of the SGA
that elections will be
coming up soon.
According to Lefler,
many students are in-
terested in the Cooper-
ative Education (co-Op)
program here at ECU. At
the meeting today, Lefler
reported that several stu-
dents expressed their
feelings on the program
stating that they are not
being treated fairly. The
students feel that the
Co-Op program should be
investigated. Lefler an-
nounced that anyone in-
terested in the investi-
gation should contact her
by the end of the week.
Lefler also reminded
members of the SGA to
attend the meetings on a
regular basis.
Lefler stated that she
hoped several people will
be interested in the Bills
and Sales Committee. She
added that the members
should worry about the
quality of the bill and
how it will affect the
students. She reminded
the members that they
are the leaders of the
student body.
Two new bills were
introduced and will be
sent to the appropriation
committee. The LB 13-1,
Constitution of Biology
Club, and LB 13-2, Ap-
propriations for Handball
were the two introduced.
Dean Alexander com-
mented on the new Pan-
asonic unit purchased for
the Student Center. Ac-
cording to Alexander, the
TV screen is the largest
screen on the market. He
stated that the TV screen
is a fine way to expand
ECU's facilities especially
with the good movies and
sports activities on tele-
vision. Alexander culled
the screen something for
everyone.

The OtNer Side
of
MacIness
by Anita Lancaster
If vou were one of the 635 students whose
schedule was cancelled this semester, anger and
frustration were probably all you felt last week. Every
where you turned you were told the same thing over
and o' er, "I'm sorry, but there is nothing can do
about it. 4 p.m. on January 8 was the deadline date
for picking up your schedule
So, you make your weary way into the drop-add
line, hoping and praying that you'll be lucky enough
to get at least some of the courses you had originally
signed up for. At this point you were met with good
and bad news.
Vhe good news was that some of the courses you
wanted were still open. The bad news � they were at
times no one else wanted.
You were met with jillions of 8 o'clock classes and
6:30-9:30 classes. When you finally completed your
all-day tour of ECU's infamous drop-add line and
looked at your crazy schedule, your frustration and
anger came to its peak. "Why me Then you
violently cursed ECU and the administration for
putting you through this horrible nightmare.
Luckily, my schedule was not cancelled, but some
of my friend's schedules were. So, I decided to seek
out the culprit behind this outrageous cancelling of
schedules � and I found him. The culprit was you
The school furnished you with two notices
concerning scheduling. The first notice you received
was during pre-registration. This was an 8Vfc xll inch
sheet of white paper entitled:
SPRING SEMESTER 1979
Fee Payment and Registration
Procedures For Pre registered Students
The second notice was the Cashier's Statement re-
vived by you in the mail.
Both these notices contained identical information
stating when and where you could pay your fees and
the deadline date for picking up your schedule. So,
the information was all there. You just didn't read it
thoroughly.
A great part of your schedule being cancelled was
your fault, but I have one suggestion for the
university. Since the average skim-reader's eyes are
immediately directed to bold-face type, it may have
been a good idea to put All undergraduate schedules
not . secured by 4 p.m. January 8 will be cancelled
in bold-face so students would be sure to see it.
Okay, so you admit it was your fault, but vou still
want to know, "Why do they have to cancel
schedules?" Well, that was my question too. So, after
a few phone calls, I finally located the man who does
know exactly why.
"Because it is frustrating not to cancel schedules.
We have no way of knowing which of those students,
that have not picked up their schedules, will come
back said Mr J. Gilbert Moore, Registrar of ECU.
"Out of those 635 students whose schedules were
cancelled, 500 of them did not show up. If we didn't
cancel those schedules, there would be no cards to
pick up during drop-add Moore added.
The university did everything they could in help
every 10,314 students who pre-registered this past
semester. Did you know that ECU is the only school
in the N.C. University system that hand checks eierv
schedule after it has come out of the computer? Thev
do this to make sure there are no conflicts and to
work out the schedules so they are exactly, if not
close, to what you, as a student, wanted.
As I have learned throughout the years, experience
is the best teacher. I'm almost certain that those of
you will not let your schedule be cancelled again.
Just remember, since ECU is a fairly large school,
the only means of communication with you is through
notices. So, if you want to know what is going on,
you're going to have to read these notices thoroughly.
If you can follow these three simple rules, then
hopefully you'll never encounter anymore mis-
understandings with the university.
1. Read all notices thoroughly.
2. Try putting the notices received throughout the
year in an old shoe box; that way you'll always have
it to look back on.
3. If you cannot pick up your schedule by the
deadline date, and you know for sure that you- are
coming back, call the Registrar's office and they will
gladly hold your schedule for you.
Have a problem with school? Maybe I can help. Just
write it out and bring it to the FOUNTAINHEAD
office or mail it in care of this column.

College and apathy
Colleges across the nation have
turned inward, and student action and
involvement have been supplanted by
apathy and a return to the frivolous
lifestyles of the fifties. ECU,
unfortunately, is one of the leaders in
student apathy.
College is more than a training
ground in which to acquire a marketable
It is a place to broaden one's
horizons, to be challenged by new
ideas.
The liberal arts offer that kind of
personal enrichment, yet enrollment in
these fields has dropped off sharply,
while business and technology have
increased in popularity. Another means
of personal growth is through active
participation in a student organization.
A letter in today's "Forum"
complains, among other things, of the
high ratio of ads to copy in
FOUNTAINHEAD, and we admit that
that ratio is far too high. It has
nothing to do with salaries, as the
author of the letter suggested (the ads
would be sold anyway; the high ratio
only makes them more prominent) but
with the fact that we simply do not
have the manpower studentpower) to
hold up the news end of the bargain.
The Student Union, the largest
student controlled organization on cam-
pus, suffers from the same problem as
other organizations. The Coffeehouse
Committee, for example, has advertised
since before Christmas for new mem-
bers. None have come forward, and
the committee is virtually nonexistent.
The interest, however, is there, judging
from the attendance at Coffeehouse
shows and at similar place downtown.
Probably very 'ittle can be done to
combat this apathy. it's simply a
malady of the times which, hopefully,
will bottom out soon before too many of
the strides made in the last decade are
lost due to neglect. The decision lies
with the individual.

It's rather ironic that
Don Carey's Concert Sol-
ution (FOUNTAINHEAD,
Jan. 11) is the same
solution that the Major
Attractions Committee has
been considering.
In order to understand
why such a plan is not
presently used, we need
only remember the disas-
terous events of two
years ago. That year, the
committee reserved a
night and then planned a
concert. That concert,
which featured Charlie
Rich, lost over $20,000.
On the year, the com-
mittee lost over S60f000.
Concert tours are not
scheduled months in ad-
vance as are intramural
schedules; but rather
weeks inadvance.
Although the suggest-
ed plan (of reserving
several nights far in
advance) could be dan-
gerous from our stand-
point, it can and will
work if trades can be
negotiated.

Having seen the film

with interest two different
reaction to
the him. having read
much of the press
material associated with
the film (from both
Twentieth Century Fox
and the popular film
critics), having spoken to
individuals who have also
viewed the film, I can
onlv be dismayed by the
level o sensitivity and
common sense which the
criti - of such major
publications as "Time
'Newsweek and "Films
in Review" have ex-
ercised (or more correctlv,
to exercise) in their
handling of Magic.
Please do not mis-
understand meI do not
throw about names such
hat of Richard Shickle
and his colleagues purelv
the purpose of
name-dropping. Thev are
men who are respected in
their field. But as an
amateur movie-buff I
have learned to take the
opinion of any critic with
a grain of salt. Anyone
who has read he popular
reviews of Robert Alt-
man- A U fdding and
then managed to sit
through the film knows
this tii be true.
A Wedding is an
object lesson in the
reliability of film critics.
And so, it turns out,
is Levine's Magic.
Magic is the story of
Corky, a young man verv
much concerned about
'being a fai!ureso very
concerned, in fact, that
he has forced the answser
to the dilemma, directlv
perhaps, out of his own
subconscious in the form
�i a ventriloquist's
dummy which he controls
without conscious effort of
conscious recognition that
he is controlling it. He is
much too shy and
internalized to develop
the "charm the per-
his way to his own
success. It is obvious in
the film that he enjoys
doing just that. Under the
terms of society, he has
found his niche; he is
sublimated.
But Corky is not such
an individual. He vests
his dummy, Fats, with
those qualities that are so
necessary to making it in
the entertainment field,
but that he abhors and
,cannot generate in him-
self.
Where is the support
for this?
Many places, but it
can be most clearly seen
in the fact that Fats is
Cinema
sona, required to capture
the audience in the tough
and cold world of night
club entertainment, to be
a success in the enter-
tainment business.
To see this clearly,
one has only to look at
the way Goldman plays
the character of Corky
(the young up-and-coming
magician played with
incredible skill by An-
thony Hopkins) against
that of his manager Ben
Greene who is portrayed
by Burgess Meredith.
Greene is a rough-and-
tumble businessman who
has fought his way to the
top of his profession and
stayed there through his
own brand of "charm"
(the italics in this case
are my own). He has
bellowed, cajoled,
threatened, and wooed
the more dynamic of the
team when onstage, and
in the related fact that
Corky makes almost every
important statement about
himself and about his
affection for his childhood
sweetheart Peg (plaved
by Ann�sighMargret)
through Fats.
Much is revealed bv
Fats' acid-tongued, X -
rated dialogue, both
onstage and during
personal conversation
Things that are in Gorky's
psyche but that he himself
could never say before an
audience.
Corky's flooding sense
of self-doubt and recrim-
inations concerning his
own character weaknesses
appear clearly in the
flippant, desultory tone
with which the dummv
speaks to him. The
contempt with which he
treats himself (again
through fearing failure)
runs deep through the
movie.
Through his sub-
conscious, and by way of
his alter ego, Fats, Corky
goads himself to the very
brink of making it big as
a stage magician, but he
runs into the one thing
that can stop his dreams
dead in their tracksthe
medical exam required by
the major television
network before they will
offer him that all-im-
portant prime-time con-
tract.
Like most people who
have one or another sort
of emotional problem
Corky realizes that
something is basically not
right with himself, and
that if the psychologists
found out what it was
that was wrong thev
would promptly retire him
to a laughing academy.
That, accoring to his
own brand of reasoning,
would be the worst thing
that could happen to him
since it would not only
draw to a close his
promising career, but
would, in addition imply
that he was also a failure
as one of those well-ad-
justed members of society
allowed to walk about
without a leash.
In despair, he quickly
rearranges his definition
of success. He packs up
his meager belongings
and his companion and
alter ego, Fats (who,
needless to say, he keeps
in close proximity at all
times) and journeys to
the Catskills where, he
remembers, abides his
childhood love, Peggy
Ann Snow.
There is not much
chance that his suddenly
thinking of her after
fifteen years of absence is
an accident. Once he
dreamed of making her
his spouse, and now that
his desire to hit the
big-time on the stage-
magician circuit has fallen
through, he redefines
success as finally fulfilling
his childhood ambition.
If he can win her
heart after all these
years, then under these
new terms he can still be
a success.
This element of
success is also threat-
ened, as it turns out,
with the arrival of Ben
Greene who has tracked
down Corky to his
hideaway at the vacation
cabin run by Peg and her
husband Duke (Ed Lauder
who plays the role with
his usual level of breaded
greasiness of character).
His intention was
merely to try to talk
Corky out of what he at
first thinks to be Corky's
fear of making the big-
time. But, as fate would
have it, he manages to
arrive in the middle of a
violent argument between
the young ventriloquist
and his dummy.
This gives rise to one
of the most satisfying
film scenes that I have
ever witnessed, and it is
due in no small part to
the phenomenal acting
skills of Burgess Mere-
dith.
From the first moment
we see Greene standing
in the door of Corkv's
J
cabin, we are instantly
aware that this man, who
has lived through the
hardest years of a
ANTHONY HOPKINS STARS as a ven- his acid tonga
triloquist who creates a sensation with
dog-eat-dog profession, is
scared. He is trying hard
to control his features,
and he succeeds as well
as a man can. Bt, as an
actor Meredith knows
that a man's eyes will
give him away. And they
do. Greene is scared. He
is scared to death.
He tries to convince
Corky to get the prof-
essional help he so
desparately needs. But
Corky will have none of it.
Instead, he repeats
weakly that there is
nothing wrong with him.
Rather than argue
with Corky, Greene pro-
poses a bargain: if
Corky can make Fats shut
up for as few as five
minutes they will forget
the matter, but if he
cannot, then Corky must
submit to psychiatric
treatment.
Greene is no fool he
knows full well that Corky
is no longer in control.
The scene turns out
pretty much as one might
expect, with Corky
prematurely grabbing the
dummy who immediately
erupts with a hurricane-
spiel of stage patter.
Greene leaves to call
the authorities, and Corky
is left alone with Fats to
contemplate the destruc-
tion of his plans with
Peg. It is no accident that
the solution to this
dilemma comes from Fats
rather than Corky.
Answer?
Kill Greene.
This is a nice, violent
scene that should satisfy
the ghoulish psyche of
the most avid horror-show
fan; well set up, and
filmed for the best
possible effect.
A nice touch follows.
Standing over the bodv of
his manager, and ob-
scured by the dark, he is
forced to hold his voice in
control and provide an
answer for Peg who
emerges from the back
e dummy, Fats.
door of the manager s
cabin and demands of
him a decision on what
she should thaw out as a
side dish for dinner:
asparagus tips or French-
cut green beans?
Doubtless, the green
beans would have proved
too much to handle.
After dinner, Greene
is loaded down with rocks
and deposited in the
center of a nearby lake.
Where is Fats while
all this is transpiring?
Why, perched up in
the window of the cabin
watching it all take place,
of course.
What he sees must
cause him some fluttering
of his wooden heart, for
as Cork ferries Greene
out into the lake, the
older man is revived by
the chill waters and
struggles against his
murder in a last-ditch
effort to survive.

that these mstruments and the most pnm.tive percussion or wind unimaginably bad, and the effort is wasted. Just as
often, however, the result is perfect for the
composition.
During his early days on keyboards with Roxy
Music, he was known primarily for his colorful stage
costumes, complete with sequins and eye shadow,
which stood in striking contrast to the stark simplicity
of lead singer, Bryan Ferry's vaguely militaristic
costumes. After his departure from Roxy Music, he
recorded a series of brilliant solo albums, including
Here Come The Warm Jets, Taking Tiger Mountain
By Strategy, and Another Green World, and
established himself as an obscure avant-guarde
composer, apparently destined to be heard only by the
knowledgeable few. He has written music for several
films and recorded a group effort with Phil Manzanera
and others as "801
It wasn't until his recent collaboration with David
Bowie on Low and especially on Heroes that he began
to receive the recognition he had long been denied,
although in truth he has never really sought
recognition. Earning his keep primarily through
producing others, he seems satisfied with his books,
experiments, and intellectual associates.
The process by which he writes lyrics is as
fascinating as his composition methods. Since, as he
will readily admit, he doesn't play any instruments in
the traditional sense, he will play a simple melody,
chord, or single note, play with it at the control
board, and take the basic musical track, by now with
additional studio musicians, with him to be played on
his home system. Turning the music up and very
loud, he will place a portable recorder somewhere in
the room and sing or make vocal noises while the
music is playing on the stereo.
Later, he will play the tape in the portable
recorder and try to decipher what the lyrics are.
Eventually, an idea will take shape and influence the
lyrics. Eno describes the process as "trying to fool"
himself into writing.
His latest release, Before and After Science,
(Fourteen Pictures), consists of 10 songs and four
water colours by Peter Schmidt, a longtime associate,
illustrating the world before technology and it's
ultimate effects. Unlike so many popular artists, Eno
sees science as a benevolent force, merely waiting to
be fully utilized
BRIAN ENO'S ALBUMS "are among the most adventuresome " in progressive music today.
The pictures illustrate technologv's evolution, from
the misty peaks of "The -Road to the Crater through
the naturalistic blend of man and nature in "Look at
September, Look at October to the cold sterilitv of
"The Other House until the final resolution of the
two forces in "Four Years where the beautv of
nature is supplanted by the perfect geometrv of
science. The parallel lines of the staircase and balconv
are unnatural, but a closer look reveals that the
geometry of the staircase and balcony is achieved
through the imaginative use of wood, a natural
substance.
Eno's unique fusion of music and imagery,
although not original, (Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds is
a perfect example; instead of a musical soundtrack,
Bernard Hermann, Rene Gassman, and Oskar Sala
composed a score of electronic noises to complement
the action on the screen), is nevertheless a rarelv
used device. Just like The Birds, neither the music
nor the image is complete without the other. In order
to understand the artist's statement, both must be
appreciated and understood.
The album is divided roughly into a fast side and
a slow side, progressing from the faster, more
primitive science of the Industrial Revolution to the
sublime, floating perfection of the science yet to come.
The first side is the better of the two, since
neither the music nor the lyrics slow down long
enough to be uninteresting. Even on the musicallv
redundant "King's Lead Hat" the lyrics manage to
raise the song to Eno's usual high standard.
"Backwater" explores the relationship between
mysticism and science through an abstract narrative,
finally concluding that "if you study the logistics and
holistics of the mystics you will find that their minds
rarelv move in a line
On first listen, the song sounds like a typical Eno
arrangement of guitar, bass, drums, and synthesisers,
but the liner notes list only drums and bass, with Eno
playing rhythm guitar, brass, and piano. He has
successfully recreated the sound of electronic music
using conventional instruments.
Side two suffers lyrically, since he is more
interested in creating gentle tone poems than in
saying anything through his lyrics.
Although the second side has a number of faults
it still expresses the central theme well and paints the
future m quiet pastels. The serenity, even optimism,
of the songs inspires confidence in the human mind.

All-Star games end
NCAA grid season
By The Associated Press
The college football season is finally
over.
The season, which began Sept. 1
with Penn State trimming Temple 10-7
at State College, Pa came to an enc
halfway around the globe Sunday in
Tokyo, where the East All Stars rallied
for four touchdowns in the fourth
quarter and defeated the West 33-14 in
the fourth Japan Bowl before a crowd
of 55,000.
Two other all-star games were
played Saturday, the South beating the
North 41 -21 in the 30th annual Senior
Howl at Mobile, Ala and the
Pacific-10 seniors outscored the Big
Eight seniors 36-23 in the second
Challenge Bowl at Seattle.
In the Japan Bowl, Drew Hill of
Georgia Tech returned a kickoff 102
yards for a third period touchdown for
the East. But the West still led 14-7 on
a 6-yard scoring pass from Dave
Spriggs of New Mexico to Mitch Pleis
of Stanford and a 22-yard touchdown
run by Jerry Eckwood of Arkansas.
Purdue's Russell Pope returned a
punt 63 ards for a touchdown to ignite
the East's 26-point fourth quarter. The
East then took the lead when two
college quarterbacks hooked up for a
touchdown, Springs throwing 10 yards
to Chuck Fusina of Penn State.
The East got two insurance touch-
downs when Dave' Huffman of Notre
Dame recovered a fumble in the end
zone and Joe Montana, anpther Notre
Darner, fired a 22-yard scoring pass to
Curtis Weathers of Mississippi.
Scott Fitzke of Penn State, who
caught three passes for 51 yards, was
named the game's most valuable
player.
Jeff Rutledge of Alabama threw for
one touchdown and ran for another to
lead the South to a victory in the
Senior Bowl and drew praise from
South Coach Dick Nolan. "He threw
hard and tough said Nolan. "He
showed everyone he can throw
Rutledge guided the South to a 24-7
first-period lead and was at the helm
when it scored 31 of its 41 points.
The South's Willie Jones, a
defensive tackle from Florida State, was
named the game's most valuable
player. He was constantly breaking
through into the North backfield and
sacked the quarterback six times.
